appropriate. they've been a long time comimg, but iowa's one week from tonight. republicans and democrats across the state will go to their designated precincts next monday night. caucusing involves much more than voting - it includes discussing candidates, picking convention delegates and dealing with state party business. this is video from the 2012 caucuses at a cedar rapids precinct. for some people new to the state, or new to voting, caucusing can be confusing. kcrg-tv9's sarah mccarty explains how it's done. "staff and students at cornell college are preparing for caucus night in a couple different ways. different areas on campus will serve as precinct locations for both parties. but for many students here this will be their first time experiencing a caucus - and today, mock caucuses are clearing up any confusion." 41:53 "i had heard the term primary, but i had never heard

39:01 "t"tre's a little confusion on theheetails of what's going to happen. registration and things of that sort." 43:53 "it was kind of cool they had representatives from candidates speak, i didn't know that was a part of it. a lot of it was surprising to me."surprising ly simple is how many students here are describing the caucus process after a practice run today. nats - pledge of allegiance no matter which party you're causing for, the basics are the same. graphic y must bbregistered as a democrat or rereblican. but you can register the day of at your precinct location. if you don't know where to go, you can search for your site on the iowa secretary of state's website. once you arrive and sign in.. nats it changes by party. nats republicans will allow one person to speak on behalf of each candidate. then, it goes to a secret ballot. "in the precinct they'll vote for the candidates, we'll collect the ballots, they'll go count the ballots, and once they've counted them they'll fill out a form that'll be the offcial record from the precinct."ellis says about half of people

county'sarty platform. nats s dems ' the democrats do it a little differently. organizers will count how many people show up. from there, caucus goers will form presidential preference groups. but that's not the end. 05:45 "in order to cast a ballot for a candidate, that candidate has to have what's called a viability threshold. which means they have to have a aleast 15 percent of f e vote for any votes to be cast for that particular candidate."tha at least one candidate meets the threshold. delegates are then awarded to preference groups based on their size. hassell says it all sounds complicated - but once you're there, the process is pretty quick and painless. 03:28 "you show up, you sign in and you participate." "now the most important part of this is really making sure you get to the right place.your caucus precinct is not necessarily where you go to vote in primaries or general
